Colombian band M.A.K.U. Soundsystem is set to perform on Thursday, August 11, at 8:00 PM at Skirball Cultural Center’s Sunset Concerts in Los Angeles.
An eight-piece band based in New York City, M.A.K.U. Soundsystem explores the immigrant experience through an exciting blend of musical styles honoring their cultural heritage.
Psychedelic rock, funk, jazz, Afro-beat, and Caribbean grooves combine with the music of indigenous Colombian peoples and West African and Spanish influences-creating a sound sure to bring audiences to their feet.
In their latest album, Mezcla (the Spanish word for “mix”), they invite listeners to rediscover the United States through the eyes and ears of Colombian immigrants. The band formed in 2010 and has released two independent albums and one EP.
